Earle Bruce Signed 1987 Ohio State vs. Michigan game program, affectionately know as the "Earle Game."  After seeing their head coach fired before the regular season finale, Ohio State's players rallied for Earle Bruce and knocked off archrival Michigan, 23-20, in Ann Arbor. Wearing head bands that said EARLE across them, Ohio State players played inspired football and with a relentless energy.  Matt Frantz snapped a tie with just over five minutes remaining and Ohio State knocked down two Hail Mary attempts to give their head coach a win in his final try over Michigan. 

Program was signed by Earle Bruce in black sharpie, adding "Go Bucks!"  The program cover was written on by the original owner 23 "Earle's last game" and also added OSU 23 MICH 20. The cover has a small fold in the upper right and a small rip in the middle of the top. There's also a 3/4 vertical fold on the back cover.
